A quit claim is typically used when a property is being transferred outside of the traditional sale process, often when someone wants to give property to a friend or family member or add or remove someone from a deed. A quit claim deed differs from a traditional warranty real estate deed in that it does not guarantee that the property has a clean title. The transfer is made without the benefit of a full title search.
If you decide to go this route, don’t try to handle all the details and document preparation on your own. The laws can be complicated, so make sure you’re following all applicable steps and requirements.
The process is to provide the required information below and then our attorneys will draft a Quit Claim deed that will need to be signed by the grantor. Once signed, our team will record the deed in the county where the property is located and pay the necessary taxes for you. We will provide you the amount of taxes required upon review.
Grantor is the person giving the interest in the property.
Grantee is the person who is accepting the interest in the property.
What We Need:
The balance of any mortgage on the property
Sales price, if any
Name, marital status, and address of the grantor and grantee
What You Get:
A copy of the recorded deed. We can coordinate signing remotely, or in person at your office or house, for an additional charge. If you sign the quit claim deed at our Fort Lauderdale office, there is an additional charge.
You will receive your prepared quitclaim deed within five working days of receipt of your request or any required documents necessary to provide the service. Information we need from you will include your general information, the property address, and the mortgage balance, if any.
